Mark Wahlberg to produce show on marijuana legalisation movement

LOS ANGELES, Nov 23 — The team behind “Entourage” and “How to Make It In America” is working on a comedy about the marijuana legalisation movement in the US, according to

Mark Wahlberg (picture) has worked with his usual producing partners, Rob Weiss and Steve Levinson, on the project called “Happy Tree” for Fox.

As Colorado and Washington passed a law to legalise marijuana for recreational use in November, this campaign will serve as the backdrop for this project. The show will focus on a corporate attorney who quits his job after a nervous breakdown and turns into an unexpected spokesperson for the ‘legalise it’ campaign in California, where the medical use of the drug is considered legal, but not its recreational use. — AFP/Relaxnews
